Meanwhile if your on Facebook can you share my stuff round so that more people can witness my bonkers stuff! ReTweat and Share button on Facebook is all I ask for this stuff to continue....

    I'm sure it will survive but will it gain or lose time? Did you check it against a reference time before the big freeze?

    By the way, I'll have a choc-ice please

    After 7 hours.... I'll leave it over night and hopefully Gary will pop over to help me take some pictures in the morning...?

    Nutter? Why?

    Just coz you wouldn't scratch your '***' when wearing your Rolex

    Is it still under warranty?

    What's next, Al?
    Regards

    Ian


    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Probably NOT under warranty any longer, if the boys at Bremont monitor this forum.

    Al, you just ain't right, dude! I can imagine my wife's reaction if I filled a container with water and put it in the freezer:

    Rovina: "Just what the heck are you doing?"
    Me: "Oh, just freezing one of my watches."
    Rovina: "Are you insane? Why would you do that?"
    Me: "Oh, Alistair did it and it seemed like a fun experiment"
    Rovina: "Alright, that's it ! Your internet priveleges are revoked for a month, no more hanging out with that bunch at ATG!"

    She'd likely start using those parental controls our computer supposedly has built into it.
